    Restoran Gembira at TMn Mega is another very authentic Kolo Mee and Sarawak Laksa Stall… Two Thumbs UP!! From the color of the noodles to the texture and taste, it just reminds me of the plate i had in Kuching few years back… will definitely checkout this stall if arounf the neck of the wood…
    Corner shop Lucky garden’s sarawak laksa also ranks one of the best in Klang valley..

    it looks almost similar to what they have back in Kuching (i’m a Kuchingnite)! it’ll be great if he served it in the classic porcelain bowl instead of a plate. :P

    Looks pretty good. I don’t recall getting mushroom in my kolo mee here…also, it looks like he puts a bit more veg in his kekekekeke

    All Sarawakian noodles! It was a case of near yet so far. I have lived in Puchong for 16 years only to find out too late. Maybe make a special trip there. Most Kolo Mee I ate in KL is ordinary.

    None of my Sarawakian friends found any good, authentic Sarawak kolo mee in Klang Valley… but this look promising though. :)

    Great looking noodles there… Kolo mee is pretty much foreign to me for I’ve only tasted one forgettable version before in KL, and never been to Sarawak but so much has been said and blogged about it that it’s like a mystery I must unearth!! I hate fried shallots too, so will ask uncle to hold when I do make it here.

    tried a few, esp in pandan indah area. not good at all.
    maybe this would do the trick?
    i find the kolo mee rather dry most of the times.

    Looks tasty. Damn I’m hungry.
    But from the picture, is the amount of minced pork and char siew a bit little? But it’s Rm3.80, so that why?
    Or.. is the minced pork and char siew hiding?

    • vkeong
      September 17, 2009

      Hmm.. I think the amount is still quite normal.. the noodle itself is the nicest thing in Kolo Mee so I didn’t really care about the garnishing lol

    Haha, dang!! Now my GF (sarawakian) wants to go there eat now. Haha, we tried a lot of “Sarawak Noodles” before, such as the one at Asia Cafe, terrible! I had my share of fresh Kolo mee, there are two kinds though, the black one is normal and there is another one, red one, is added with “Sau You”. I prefer red one, wonder Puchong there got or not. Going to ask my friend working at Mercedes in Kinrara to guide us there. He too went to Kuching and tried the Kolo before, so we have two locals and one Sarawakian to test it. Haha

    IMO, nothing in Klang Valley comes close to this shop, I lived in Sarawak for most of my life and i frequent this shop every week without fail. Did similar review in my dusty blog too..


    The one in Taman Megah does come close to this. Also best you call the uncle to prepare it “DRY” as he tend to serve it a bit soggy to cater for the people here. The real kolo mee in sarawak is dry, but the noodles are coated with just the right amount of oil.

    Guys, I’m from Miri, Sarawak.
    I’ve been to Gembira one. This one. That one. And many other onces.

    You want the my opinion which onces are the closest to the most authentic kolomee? I haven’t been everywhere but to a lot of shops. The best in my opinion is Asia Cafe, SS15.

    Even the price is not near the stupid RM4.
    Back at Miri, the standard price is still RM2.5

    Kolomee is good not for just taste but price. The actual standard additional ingredients are spring onions and minced pork ONLY. Any others are just BS.

    Agree that Tar Chong, Seri Kembangan has an awesome Kolo Mee stall.

    Rajah Brooke doesn’t even come close and yeah Vkeong is right, all “sarawak handmade noodles” shops are inauthentic.

    Then again, we Sarawakians tend to differ on our definition of Kolo Mee as different cities/towns have slightly different variations.

    In Miri, it just be dry with minced pork only. Others could be dry, springy mee and charsiew. Yet others, could be springy mee, sliglthy soggy (oily) with fishcakes/balls and udang. Vegetables pun sometime tambah2. Or mee could be soft sikit, hmm.

    But still whatever style it is, Kolo Mee is still Kolo Mee. Hehehe

    P/s IMHO, the pork/charsiew should be fresh, not ‘smelly’, baru boleh makan….

    Ohh…. i miss Kuching Kolo Mee. Ever since i back from Kuching about 10 years ago, Kolo Mee has been my number 1 Mee in my food list. You guys are right, Until now, i still yet to find a right Kolo Mee in KL. And most disappointed thing is, many sellers claim they are selling authentic Kolo Mee from Kuching…. all BS-lah!! Wasting my time & money!

    Will definitely try out this Puchong Kolo Mee and hope it won’t disappoint me again! :) Thanks for sharing guys!

    Hii, if you like the ‘Q mee’ you should try out this new stall at PJ, name of the coffeeshop is Restoran Arlison at SS2/1, the taste of their sarawak kolomee is most original.. very authentic, the best in town for me!!

    Im from Kuching n this stall better b good. I have also found that there is a kolo mee stall at equine park, seri Kembangan that taste as good as any kolo mee stalls in kuching, except for the fact he uses different type of noodle. None the less, the taste is there.
